sale barn cattle

Postby farmboy80 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 7:53 pm

Wanting to know what you all do with your cattle you purchase at the sale barns. As far as vaccination, dewormer, just turn out?
I bought a cow/calf pair, I've got them separate from the rest of my cows. Going to deworm them tomorrow. Just wanting to know how long before I turn them out with the rest of my cattle? They seem healthy. Look and act just fine. Just curious what everybody does?

Looks good to me. I would use the killed virus on first round and booster with modified live. Covexin 8 wouldn't hurt on either one.

worm and vaccinate like they are saying, I don't Quarantine as long as C B does but it sure does not hurt to and probably is a good thing to do. I also record the metal ear tag numbers and keep it and record any brands/marks. If I am keeping them I like to brand them before I put them out to pasture if they are just resalers I don't.

Sure don't want them in close proximity of your main herd, like a fence barrier. They still can catch ' shipping fever' through it,or share a water source,it's a nightmare....they can be carriers,are suffer themselves from it...takes a couple days to show up too..I've known guys to turn them out a couple day after they got em home.. And bam!! several of the cows came down with it....good luck..

Use to have to move my herd when my neighbor unloaded stockyard cattle from the yard right in with his herd...when ever I'd see tags on some new ones I'd move em to the bottom....

BVD PI and Johnes tests. I don't need a typhoid Mary. Though they can test clean for Johnes and polluting your entire pasture the next year.

I bring in calves often, if they are from the stock yard or off the farm they get Inforce 3, Presponse, Alpha 7, implant with Ralgro, Cydectin injectable, if bulls they get tetanus antitoxoid and castrated. I normally keep them separated for less than a week. Longer I'm sure wou ok do be ok but if I'm buying I need the lots for the next calves in a week.
If I buy cows at the stock yard or off the farm they get the same treatment minus the Ralgro and tetanus.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

I do basically the same vaccination program. Some difference in brand names but drugs to address the same issues. I also give them a blast of LA200 to help with any bugs they may have picked up at the salebarn. And I hot iron brand them. I have a friend who runs about 1,000 stockers, 99% from the saleyard he give the same drugs with draxxin. I just can't bring myself to give every one of them draxxin.

Let's back up a little. I use BoviShield 5L5, so I am going to "assume" Vira Sheild 6 + VL5 is also a Modified Live Vaccine (MLV). You DO NOT want to vaccinate a pregnant cow or the calf nursing a pregnant cow if you do not have a history of previous vaccination. You can abort the cow - if she is pregnant.
I don't believe in wasting my money on killed vaccines, but this is a good case for the product. Inforce III is safe for pregnant cattle (I believe) and is a great product.

Must be different studies up north than here. I'll quit vaccinations if I have to use live vaccines.
